It's Day 4 of New York Fashion Week. Here are some highlights:
Inspired by the idea of Gloria Vanderbilt and Keith Richards returning from a trip to colonial India in the 1960s, Timo Weiland co-designers, Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein, showed a mesmerizing men’s and women’s Fall 2011 collection. Included in the line-up were tribal animal motifs, metallic fabric pops, plaid-on-plaid looks, and above all, amazing prints with an Op Art-like feel and another with a psychedelic painterly feel particularly standing-out.
It’s no secret that Tory Burch’s namesake collection is always inspired by what’s missing in her own closet. Her uptown appeal has captured the interest of shoppers worldwide and they clamor for her logo emblazoned accessories and simply styled ready-to-wear looks. For Fall, the designer reflected the 70s trends we saw last season while integrating a few of this season’s most prevalent, so far. The presentation was a hybrid of the installation format we’ve seem more and more of in the past few seasons and a standard runway show as the girls stood still before making their standard walk.
Thakoon certainly knows how to work a print. Not since Diane von Furstenburg have we seen a designer work so successfully with a mixture of prints on a seemingly endless stream of wearable dresses and separates.
